    Is John out of the office?


    "Is John in the office today? His Out-of-Office notification said that he will return today," Mary asked.

    "I am not sure but I heard that he has extended the vacation," Peter replied.

    "Did he change his return date?  You know, I won't receive another Out-of-Office notification even he changed his schedule. How can I check his latest Out-of-Office status?" Mary asked.

    "You can use Query Out-of-Office Status side-bar widget in your Notes client and you will get the answer instantly," Peter replied.
     

    Currently, some ways to find out an individuals out of office status is to:

    • Ask others within the organization or visit the individual’s specific department or location to find out
    • Send an email to the user and wait to receive the Out of Office notification
    With the above options, chances are that you may not get a quick answer right away without having to spend time and effort searching.

    Thankfully, Out of Office Manager’s ability to query other user Out of Office status will save you effort and time in which you will have the answer instantly. Out of Office Manager allows querying other out of office status via the iPhone or Android OOO App, or the Notes sidebar widget.  As the below screenshots illustrate, simply type a username or group name and you will get the out of office status of user(s) instantly.

    The great thing about this feature is that the out of office status will be the latest status, even if the user changed or updated the out of office schedule just minutes prior.
